In my youth, I grew up being a fanatic about the greater phenomenon of UFOs (aka Unidentified Flying Objects), and I couldn't get enough books to read on the subject. Now, I won't trouble readers here with what I think about flying saucers and/or their potential occupants and/or what it all might mean to us, but I will share that Deadline the other day reported that Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis has turned his eyes toward the skies for a ten-episode, direct-to-series event on the Air Force's often misunderstood Project Blue Book.
Essentially, the United States Government needed some agency to investigate the rash of reported UFO sightings, and thus Project Blue Book was initiated. The venerable Dr. J. Allen Hynek spearheaded much of the investigations, and while he was known largely as a debunker of UFOs early on it was his participation with Blue Book that made a believer out of him.
Color me excited about such a television event.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
